How About You? (1942)
(m) Burton Lane (w) Ralph Freed (I) Film: Babes on Broadway by Judy Garland & Mickey Rooney
Chorus 1: I like New York in June, how about you?
I like a Gershwin tune, how about you?
I love a fireside when a storm is due.
I like potato chips, moonlight and motor trips,
How about you?
I’m mad about good books, can’t get my fill.
And Franklin Roosevelt’s looks give me a thrill.
Holding hands at the movie show,
When all the lights are low may not be new.
But I like it; how about you?

Chorus 2: I like Jack Benny’s jokes, to a degree.
I like the common folks, that includes me.
I like to window shop on Fifth Avenue.
I like banana splits, late dining at the Ritz,
How about you?
I like to dream of fame, maybe I’ll shine.
I’d like to see your name right beside mine.
I can see we’re in harmony,
Looks like we both agree on what to do.
And I like it, how about you?
